As you know fonts are salient features for design and usability these days; we are blessed with technology for having a plethora of options and we are free to choose any fonts according to our requirement and liking. Earlier, only web safe fonts had to be used which had got support from all different platforms and browsers, but now we do not have to worry regarding this too as now we can simply add the font file and write few lines of CSS to ensure the perfection of design.
But today also, there exists a small issue that all browsers don’t support is one single font format, so we are bound to add few different file formats in the CSS to ensure the support from all the major browsers and devices we use.
So here, I have mentioned some best online tools for font conversion which allow conversion of any font into whatever format you want for your website. It is surely going to be useful especially for those whose work is related to web developing and web designing.
